FACE MASK Q+A
Q: How often should I use a face mask?
A: Depending on your skin condition, 2-3 times a week is a good general guideline. Masks are a great way to fine tune your routine.
Recognizing that the skin is a living organ, it may need different treatments on different days. This Olecea™ at-home “treatment menu” will meet your needs day by day:
Purifying Facial: Olecea™ Pearl + Charcoal Mask
Anti-Aging Facial: Olecea™ Snow Lotus + Green Tea Mask
Hydrating Facial Olecea™ Botanical Soothing Mask!
Q: Should I cleanse my face before applying a mask, and cleanse again after?
A: Cleansing before applying a mask is a “must” for your skin to absorb all the ingredients and benefits a mask offers. Cleansing removes dirt, oil and impurities that can irritate the skin and prevent the active ingredients from penetrating. Follow with an alcohol-free toner like our Silver + Licorice Root Protective Facial Spray to complete the cleanse and prepare your skin to achieve optimal results. It is not necessary to cleanse your face again after the mask.
Q: After using a sheet mask, do I still need to apply skincare products to our face?
Yes, we love that idea! The Olecea sheet masks contain serums with specific types of ingredients, so if you want to give your skin additional treatment or moisture, and seal in the actives, it’s a great idea to follow with another serum, face oil, or your favorite moisturizer.
Q: Are Olecea face masks for all skin types?
A: Yes, as Olecea embraces all skin types! The Snow Lotus + Green Tea Mask, Pearl + Charcoal Mask and Botanical + Hyaluronic Acid Mask are oil-free anti aging skin treatments that replenish the hydration levels of the skin without clogging pores!
Q: What are the main differences and benefits of each Olecea™ face mask?
A: Olecea designed our face masks with the best natural skin care ingredients to help prevent and correct concerns such as aging skin, acne, rosacea and sensitivity. All three masks deliver anti aging for oily skin and sensitive skin alike, while having some key differences. Our Snow Lotus + Green Tea Mask boosts the antioxidant levels on the skin, helping to prevent hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. The Botanical + Hyaluronic Acid Mask rapidly hydrates and reduces redness and irritation, while the Pearl + Charcoal Mask detoxifies and exfoliates all skin types, revealing a bright glowing complexion. Clean beauty enthusiasts rotate these masks to infuse their skin with all that they deliver, to achieve clear, smooth and luminous skin.
Q: How can Olecea’s™ Pearl + Charcoal mask help detox our skin? How can we tell when it is exfoliating the toxins out of our skin?
A: This non toxic skincare treatment contains active ingredients with powerful purifying and exfoliating properties. The finely milled Pearl Powder used in ancient Asian skincare rituals has been proven by modern science to contain replenishing anti wrinkle amino acids and healing minerals that our skin needs to be healthy. Our active Charcoal Powder has superb detoxifying benefits, as it regulates oil production and keeps pores clear, preventing breakouts. The Green Coffee is an organic skin care extract with antioxidants and other compounds that help combat free radicals, fat accumulation and excess water retention. These powerhouses are formulated in a self-heating matrix that stimulates the circulation, helping expel toxins and impurities. A few minutes after application the mask will turn from charcoal to grayish white, indicating that detoxification is complete. Once removed with cool water, the skin will look and feel noticeably refreshed and radiant.
